Lollipops = Suckers
Not a fan! They called them that in Omaha too… And soda was pop, sneakers were tennis shoes!
I agree – did you used to live in Omaha? Sneakers are tennis shoes here, too. But, what if I don’t play tennis while wearing them?!
I don’t know… just doesn’t sound right to me… I mean are you necessarily ‘sucking’ them? Maybe at times, but for the most part it’s a licking thing… so if you are going to call them something else – why not go ahead with Lickers?!
Just dawned on me that out of context… this could be construed as a very diirrttyyy conversation! hehehe ;)
Lots of non-PG thinkers in my life. lol Lickers would make more sense, but I think in turn would end up even dirtiER than saying suckers. I think I’ll just stick with lollipops. ;)
THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID. Thanks.. I’ll be here all week.
Hi Sarah and Scott,
So, you’re southerns!!!
I missed most of the winter because I had my knee surgery in January.
But, I HATE MARCH!!!!!!
Next year I am going to make sure that I go out to Tina’s for the month of March at the very least.
I will be interested in all you have to say about your life in the SOUTH.
I am very happy for the two of you that you love it so much. It was quite a move from up here.
Love you both,
I hope you’re doing well, Aunt Rosemary. We are having the time of our lives down here. But, obviously miss our family tons. LOVE YOU!
hrmmmm….too many inappropriate things that rhyme with suckers (for this to be a good word for kids to use) like…pluckers (device used to pluck), cluckers (often referred to many females talking at once), muckers (to muck in the mud?), chuckers (people who “up-chuck”), zuckers (people who follow the creator of facebook)….I could go on but you get the point.
I agree, Jenny! If adults think of nothing but inappropriate rhyming words, then the word doesn’t stand a chance with kids.
